‘sis: Pacific Art 1980–2023’
Aug 2023 - Sep 2024

Latai Taumoepeau

Sis, susa, tuofefine, tuahine, tuafafine, sister eo an, tita, kauaemua, sista — there are many different words for ‘sister’ in the Pacific region. The exhibition ‘sis’ investigates three decades of art-making from a sisterhood of artists from across Oceania. Important figures, often largely unknown outside their homelands are highlighted, alongside established artists, to create an expanded vision of the art of Oceania since the early 1990s. The exhibition includes textiles, ceramics, photography, moving image, sculpture, installation and performance.

 

‘sis’ is on display in GOMA’s Galleries 3.3 & 3.4 (Marica Sourris and James C. Sourris AM Galleries) until 8 September 2024. As this is a rotating exhibition, not all Collection works below will be on display simultaneously.
